Warsaw is generally known for being a historic city.

The thing about Warsaw is that it's actually almost entirely brand new. It fell to the ground during … Continue reading A trip to Warsaw’s Neon museum
I'll admit it. I'm struggling being anchored in the UK, with little to no travel plans for the near future. This time last year I'd already completed two trips and had two more in the works.

This isn't usually something I notice in new people, but then again, I don't usually wake up a metre away from them either. Marco is Hungarian but living in Berlin, I learn, and has a penchant for flowery … Continue reading My first experience staying in hostels: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
How many countries have you been to in your lifetime? 20? 30? Even more? Meet Henrik Jeppesen - the Danish 29-year-old who's visited every country in the world. "I don't collect objects," he shrugged, "I collect experiences." Starting his travels just 10 years earlier at the age of 18, Jeppeson decided to put travel first in … Continue reading INTERVIEW: Meet Henrik Jeppesen, the man who’s been to all 193 countries
